Wednesday marked the first day of the 2017-18 JCPS school year and with my son being a senior going into the semester it’s his last first day of high school. Yes, I realize if the academics go south that would open up the door to the possibility of another one, but he knows that his last name is Girton and the elder one in his household will not allow that to happen.
But look at how big that “kid” is. I’m the short guy standing next to him. I remember the days when I started to tower over my father. I felt like the big man on campus and in the home. Now here he is. On his first last day of high school.
And thanks to Misty for making this portrait.
